After 15 years of rebuilding, FiDi has established itself as the shopping destination in lower Manhattan. Pass through the most buzzed about building in NYC, Calatrava's Oculus, to get your fit of all-day technical essentials and to take in the awe-inspiring architecture. Then spend the day exploring the neighbourhood - relaxing in Liberty Park or enjoying the views from the top of One World Observatory. You won't be dissapointed.
